Revue de presse

"Spellbinding… This is a very intelligent book, full of sharp insights and mordant wit... It is a quirky and cool book, with a sliver of ice at its heart... It is hard to imagine anyone could read this book without getting an occasional, vertiginous thrill." (David Runciman Guardian)

"Like all great epics, Sapiens demanded a sequel. Homo Deus, in which that likely apocalyptic future is imagined in spooling detail, is that book. It is a highly seductive scenario planner for the numerous ways in which we might overreach ourselves." (Tim Adams Observer)

"Homo Deus will shock you. It will entertain you. Above all, it will make you think in ways you had not thought before." (Daniel Kahneman, author of Thinking Fast, and Slow)

"What elevates Harari above many chroniclers of our age is his exceptional clarity and focus." (Josh Glancy Sunday Times)

"I think the mark of a great book is that it not only alters the way you see the world after you've read it, it also casts the past in a different light. In Homo Deus, Yuval Noah Harari shows us where mankind is headed in an absolutely clear-sighted & accessible manner. I don't normally ask for autographs but I got a bit starstruck & asked him to sign my copy of his book after we'd had a conversation for my show on BBC 6Music. His inscription reads: 'The future is in your hands' - a good thing to remember when such great changes are afoot." (Jarvis Cocker Mail on Sunday)

‘Homo Deus will shock you. It will entertain you. Above all, it will make you think in ways you had not thought before.’ Daniel Kahneman, author of Thinking Fast, and Slow

Yuval Noah Harari, author of the bestselling Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, envisions a not-too-distant world in which we face a new set of challenges. In Homo Deus, he examines our future with his trademark blend of science, history, philosophy and every discipline in between.

Homo Deus explores the projects, dreams and nightmares that will shape the twenty-first century – from overcoming death to creating artificial life. It asks the fundamental questions: Where do we go from here? And how will we protect this fragile world from our own destructive powers? This is the next stage of evolution. This is Homo Deus.

War is obsolete
You are more likely to commit suicide than be killed in conflict

Famine is disappearing
You are at more risk of obesity than starvation

Death is just a technical problem
Equality is out – but immortality is in

What does our future hold?

Un livre tout à fait lisible même pour ceux dont l'anglais n'est pas langue maternelle, absolument passionnant et probablement très clairvoyant : l'auteur propose une lecture de l'histoire en quelques principes fondamentaux et quelques tendances à venir... avec intelligence.

I read it right after finishing his first book 'Homo Sapiens' so there are a bit of repetition which I didn't mind and also compared to the first book which was covering thousands of thousands of years this one is only covering few decades and some views about the future so the pace is really slow compared to the first. The book is not 100% dedicated to explain the future of Homo Sapiens but I enjoyed it a lot. You can't be disappointed with Mr. Harari's book.

P.S. the book is a bit heavy. It is printed with lots of spaces which wasn't necessary but this is the publisher's choice.

This is an important book: part philosophy, part analysis, part prophecy, part dream, part textbook. Endlessly fascinating and an excellent follow-on from the author's previous tour-de-force, Sapiens.

Very interesting and easy to read, shows you the world from a rather different perspective. Argues about concepts and ideas that you don't normally think about in a day to day life

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A fascinating read. A worthy successor to Sapiens. 21 septembre 2016
Par Benjamin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Yuval Noah Harari had a tough act to follow after his outstanding book 'Sapiens: A brief history of humankind', which raised (and answered) questions like: Why did human beings became all-too-powerful, rather than their ancestral brothers (Neanderthals) or cousins (apes)? How did religion come about, and how did it become a binding-force (counter-intuitively) which helped human beings conquer other animals? How did money and consumerism flourish? At this rate of scientific progress, what's our future? In this book, Homo Deus, he expands upon the last question, which he only briefly touched upon in Sapiens.

His logic, his crystal-clear arguments, his interdisciplinary thought process that made Sapiens an insightful read, make Homo Deus a fascinating read as well. The first one-third of the book is a bit of a revision of the concepts covered in Sapiens. Probably he wanted this book to be free-standing - so that one who did not read Sapiens should also be able to appreciate this next book. However, I would strongly suggest reading Sapiens before reading this one.

After the first 30-35% of the book, it really covers new grounds. Once he establishes that the pre-modern problems of war, famine and diseases are going to be solved in the future, and humanity's focus will be on making us happy and making us live indefinitely, he paints an imaginative picture of how a future data-centric world may be like.

Some of the concepts are extremely insightful - how intelligence may be different from consciousness, so inorganic algorithms may do a much better job in some of the areas which are exclusive domains of human beings now. What will happen in a data centric world where algorithms like Google and Facebook (or more sophisticated, all-encompassing versions of them) know us better than we know ourselves?

He does not make prophecies, but intelligent, logical arguments about various possibilities. Some of the possibilities are already upon us - doesn't Amazon or Netflix know what product we may like even better than we know? Doesn't google remember our movements and preferences much better than we do? Doesn't Facebook have a much better grasp of our personality than our friends have?

The future is scary and fascinating - but it may be inevitable. It is scary to think that even people as intelligent as Harari may be outsmarted and made redundant in a future where computers can produce better music than Beethoven, can play better chess than Kasparov and can even make better algorithms than their creators.

Frighteningly fascinating! Yuval Harrari writes in a straight talk no bs style with crystal clear logic and a examples to back up his theory. He emphasizes that this book is by no means an apocalyptic prophecy about the future but describes many possibilities so if we don't like it we can do something about it. Not a day go by ever since I read this book over last xmas break that I don't think about this book and what does it mean for me and my little baby's future.

Par Jack McKever - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
One thing I foresee happening with this book in the next couple of years (at least until Harari’s next book) is that people are going to be polarized by it. Those who view Harari’s speculations about the increasingly data-driven future with optimism and/or religious fervor will project their feelings into the book; those who view his speculations with trepidation (or, speaking strictly for myself, paralyzing anxiety) will do the same. Harari tries to present his views as impartially as possible, and does a pretty good job of this, but I suspect that, in his own private life, he himself falls into this latter group, though he seems to face the future a little more stoically than I do. Obviously a lot of readers of Homo Deus will disagree with me, and I have obviously undercut my own ability to make such an assumption about Harari’s views with sentence #2 of this very paragraph. But I think I have some strong reasons for my assumption, and I think that a lot of starry-eyed readers of Homo Deus will gloss over the subtle and not-so-subtle hints in their reading, and may need these reasons pointed out to them.

Maybe this is just my own paranoia, my own sense that thousands of contemporary readers with a proclivity for this kind of subject are basically Dataists as described in this book’s final chapter. Which is to say that they’re chomping at the bit to have themselves quantified and shared and plugged into the global information process. Readers like these might miss Harari’s sharp analogy between the contemporary internet user and the indigenous Americans of the sixteenth century: “conquistadors and merchants bought entire islands and countries in exchange for colored beads. In the twenty-first century our personal data is probably the most valuable resource most humans still have to offer, and we are giving it to the tech giants in exchange for email services and funny cat videos.” Ouch.

There’s also his discussion of consciousness, which is spread throughout the book and which carries a wallop. He insists repeatedly that contemporary science knows next to nothing about consciousness, as in the Hard Problem of Consciousness, as in Thomas Nagel and David Chalmers and qualia if you follow that whole line of thinking. There’s a connection between this and his discussion of how humans have historically denied or disregarded the consciousness of non-human animals so as to better treat them as machines—biochemical algorithms—for producing food and materials and labor. The connection is that as intelligence decouples from consciousness (computers can and will become superintelligent, but not necessarily conscious), human experience will carry as much value as the experiences of these animals, which is to say that we may all wind up suffering horribly for reasons we can’t fathom. This seems likely in the grim picture Harari paints, but only as long as we view ourselves strictly as algorithms, because such a view doesn’t have a place for consciousness. Harari wonders in the last chapter “whether we miss anything when we understand life as data processing and decision making…what, if anything, would be lost by replacing conscious intelligence with superior non-conscious algorithms?” The answer is tautological: consciousness. The problem is that science can’t explain consciousness, and is unlikely to explain it without a scientific revolution, as Nagel and Chalmers and others have argued. So, any worldview informed by science can’t acknowledge the existence of consciousness or advocate for its relevance to the economic/political/technological forces that will dictate what happens in the next 84 years. I read Harari as making a plea for increased research on consciousness, since a breakthrough there may be the only serious claim that individual humans can make as to their own value.

The big reason is, unfortunately, at the very end of the book. (Speaking of which, the last couple pages of this book are weak and abrupt and unsatisfying. He ends this great book’s great final chapter with a list, for chrissakes. If one of Harari’s own students submitted a paper to him with such an ending, he’d probably mark them off on that, and rightly so. I mean seriously, who does that?) He says: “This book traces the origins of our present-day conditioning in order to loosen its grip and enable us to think in far more imaginative ways about our future. Instead of narrowing our horizons by forecasting a single definitive scenario, the book aims to broaden our horizons and make us aware of a much wider spectrum of options.” Meaning that the main reason he articulates his spot-on and I think deeply insightful analysis of the contemporary weltanschauung is to help us change course. This is Foucauldian on a level that lots of readers will miss—meaning Michel Foucault the French historian/philosopher who deconstructed the bejesus out of liberal humanism 40+ years ago in an effort to find alternatives, and who described his project in much the same terms as Harari describes his, and whose work seems strikingly applicable to some of the problems Harari has delineated for us yet woefully under-appreciated by those in a position to solve those problems, just FYI.

I also suspect that a lot of readers will either ignore or misunderstand Harari’s points about intersubjective fiction (which he fleshes out in this book more fully than he did in Sapiens), mostly because it’s an idea that undermines the legitimacy of the way everyone thinks rather than just the way certain old-fashioned religions think. Liberal humanism, he argues, is just as much a fictional narrative as Christianity or Islam, and it’s hard to find fault with his reasoning on this. Dataism and other species of techno-utopianism are no different, though we’ll be tempted, as we have been in the past, to claim that whatever we wind up with will be the One True Religion, and as technology becomes more and more powerful, we will only become more and more insistent. But really the only factual arguments that these ideologies have going for them is that they’re powerful and there’ll be no stopping them; might will make these ideologies right, just as it has all triumphant ideologies. Which is itself an intersubjective fiction—i.e. if we stop believing that X is inevitable, we’ll all be less willing to acquiesce to X and thereby acutally make X inevitable, just as money becomes worthless if we all stop believing in its worth—and one that has been responsible for its fair share of death and destruction in the modern world. Can we buck this trend? It seems to me that if our technology truly connected and empowered us and enabled us to work together on massive problems, we would be able to temper this belief in an inevitable future, and prevent our technology from rendering us obsolete.

I'm not usually one to enjoy history books. However, this is the exception. Harari writes in a way that is interesting, amusing, clear, and concise. The book does an excellent job at reminding you of its point through summary and argumentative writing. It also covers a broad range of thought, ranging from psychological questions, to ethical conundrums, to philosophical puzzles, to scientific evaluation. The book thoroughly addresses it's argument, admits it's limitations, and makes you think. Read it.

This is an incredible book that will change your world view.
It will get you thinking about ideas you never thought of before.
Last week I was at a neighborhood party. Got bored by the conversation, and came home to read more of this book.
Much, much more interesting.
